GVM 11 - Can someone explain below scan configs as those are not available in any documents

Under the scan config policy --> Edit Scanner Preferences - what does below two scan config mean/define?

  1. test_empty_vhost
  2. time_between_request

Have not found this in current document “https://docs.greenbone.net/GSM-Manual/gos-3.1/en/scan_configuration.html#scanner-preferences

You are looking at the GOS 3.1 manual which had OpenVAS-8 as a base, check the GOS 6 docs which has GVM 11 as the base and where these two settings are described:


Both settings are also explained in the manpages of openvas via man openvas (Prerequisite is that the manpages are correctly installed on your system).

A post was split to a new topic: Does the configuration provided via scan config policy overrides the one of the scanner?
